This flute is very close in size and tone to our large D flute. It plays just one half step higher than the D flute.
The finger stretch for this flute may be difficult for players with small hands.
Each flute is carefully hand tuned and shaped with a modern Boehm taper to produce a note range of two and one half octaves. Included with each flute is a fingering chart, dark green gift box, and in the USA a one year manufacturer's full warranty against accidental breakage.
Please note: The Hall crystal flute is a folk instrument and plays differently than a modern concert flute. The mouth hole has a raised edge and no lip plate. If you play the silver flute, this will take some time to get used to. The biggest difference is that you will need to place the flute higher on the lip and use a slightly tighter embouchure.
Being a folk instrument, it is well-suited for playing Celtic music and traditional tunes.
